Mergers and Acquisitions in the Canadian Cannabis Sector

Margaret T. Nelligan and Sherri M. Altshuler

The Canadian cannabis sector has quickly become a hot spot for entrepreneurs and investors. With the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada expected in 2018, we can look to the global cannabis market for valuable insight. What should cannabis-sector participants be aware of regarding financing, selling and strategically growing their business within Canada? What are some of the opportunities available for businesses with international operations, including the United States, in the Canadian market?

Join our panel of experts as we identify best practices related to mergers and acquisitions, including strategic acquisitions, synergies and buying brands. You will receive professional insight on what makes mergers and acquisitions in the cannabis industry unique, what regulatory issues can come along with these transactions, and ideas for ways to raise capital. We will also discuss opportunities for ancillary businesses and provide insight on alternative financing models for domestic and international stakeholders.
